Dr. Damon Tweedy will talk about Health Disparities and Race in the Time of COVID-19 on Monday, January 18, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. This live program, sponsored by the Bridges Library System (of which Whitewater’s public library is a member), will not be recorded. No registration required.
Dr. Tweedy is a Duke University School of Medicine graduate and associate professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, as well as author of the book Black man in a white coat: A doctor’s reflections on race and medicine (UWW students and staff may request it from another UW campus library via the free UW Request service; preview some text via Google Books). His bio at the medical school lists some of his appearances in the news and additional publications.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides web pages on “COVID-19 racial and ethnic health disparities” and “Health equity considerations and racial and ethnic minority groups” that discuss why some population groups are disproportionately affected by the virus, and also provide links to data.
